Texas Instruments introduced with the TI-2300 in 1988 an interesting combination of a basic calculator and a playback memory similar to the TI-2800 Paperless Printer. The internal memory stores up to 32 entries and with two scroll keys the calculations can easily be verified or modified.

Dismantling this TI-2300 manufactured in June 1988 by Inventec Corporation in Taiwan reveals a typical design of the Eighties with a single-chip calculator circuit mounted in a flat pack package on a two-sided, rigid printed circuit board (PCB).
